Truant b/w Rough Sleeper

Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society...
This morning Burial's new single, "Truant" b/w "Rough Sleeper", became available to download as .mp3 or .wav files through Hyperdub. Thanks to a couple of Soundclouders we can also listen to the tracks now. I've admittedly been on a Burial kick this past week, so I'm pretty excited to have new material from the brooding mysterious producer. Both tracks are wonderfully disjointed dreamscapes that slowly burn into almost tribal dance steps subdued beneath contorted vocal samples that darken the atmosphere even more. It's a pretty magnificent release that is much more low key than the Kindred EP, which dropped at the start of the year, also via Hyperdub. The focus lies mostly on the vocal cuts and seemingly an experimentation on how to make them emote via tone and pitch, and not with any actual lyricism.

Burial - Truant Burial - Rough Sleeper Grab "Truant" b/w "Rough Sleeper" in .mp3 or .wav format now via Hyperdub.You can also still pick up the 12" via Boomkat.
